Notes

In order to make these bowls a 30-minute meal, you need to cook the rice and chicken ahead of time. 
If you’re short on time or spices, you can definitely use a store-bought taco or fajita mix.
Use cauliflower rice to make this recipe paleo and whole30 approved.
Try the following toppings and see what you like best:
  • Avocado
  • Fresh salsa
  • Kimchi
  • Squirt of lime
